New Brexit deal has been reached, E.U. and U.K. leaders say

BRUSSELS — European and British negotiators struck a deal Thursday on the terms of a Brexit withdrawal, raising the prospect that Britain could be out of the European Union by the end of the month.

European leaders meeting in Brussels are expected to give the agreement a preliminary nod. Then the action will shift back to London, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face the more significant challenge of getting parliamentary approval on Saturday.

“This deal represents a very good deal both for the E.U. and the U.K.,” Johnson said in Brussels. He pressed British lawmakers to “come together to get Brexit done, to get this excellent deal over the line, and to deliver Brexit without any more delay.”

To scare the House of Commons into submission, and to fulfill a political pledge, Johnson wants his fellow leaders in Brussels to rule out any further delays beyond the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was willing to grant that, with this deal in hand, “there’s no need for any kind of prolongation.”

1. But as Corbyn described it, it's "even worse than the one obtained by Theresa May"

How does he know? The DUP refuses to back it.

2. An "excellent" deal -- a perfect deal, the greatest ever !

Just another swine from the same herd.

4. So Brexit is on, though I hear that Ireland has to agree to their border part of the deal.

I see nothing about that here, and WaPo has a paywall.
